    If you're BORN where you're BORN that is who you are , so why are so many FOREIGNERS playing for different countries ? The Xhaka brothers are playing for different countries FFS, what is that all about ?

    World Football will mean NOTHING soon if all this PICKING who you play for CARRIES on ? Why are they allowed to INTERMINGLE like the GERMAN playing for RUSSIA last night, he's played for Germany so that is that ?

    I'm SICKENED by it.

      Quite right Ernest. I am English and the Krauts could try and lure me with their various sausages but I would hold true to my birthplace.

      I agree, Republic of Ireland have never done that in the past, when Jack O'Charlton was in charge you only had to fly over Ireland and you were in with a shout of selection.

      I def wouldn't go that far.Your nationality isn't just about where you were born but I agree with you there is too much inter mingling.

      England don't have it so much.I support Italy and over recent years including for this tournament we've had/have players who qualify to play for us just because the've lived in Italy for 5 years.That's totally unacceptable.

      If you think it's bad now, just wait until Qatar host the world cup. I wager a fair few Brazilians will suddenly find that they have roots in the middle east.

      For all the tripe that Ernest talks I actually think he has a point on this one. If you can only play for the country of your birth it would end all of these shenanigans once and for all

      In recent years, in rugby, most of the All Blacks 2nd XV played for, either England, Scotland, Ireland or Wales. The All Blacks 1st XV have come any island that you can think in the South Pacific.

      Please, don't get me started on Zola Budd. No, she didn't play rugby.
